A little late this month Joyce forced me to go to Florida for a week of warmth.


BOD Meeting this Weekend in Boston


There has been a lot of activity on the search for a new CEO and the action will continue this weekend with an in person BOD meeting Saturday night and Sunday morning. Iíll report to the Executive Committee during our call and here via this media soon.


Calendar Item


Iím planning a conference call with the Executive Committee on February 27th at

9:00 PM Eastern time. Please send agenda items.


Committee Directory


Iíve updated my email address but still missing many Association representatives. Please review the USATF directory and if an association rep is vacant contact the associations and request them to update their info. Remember if you have not renewed your membership your name will not be shown on the directory.

WMA Indoor March 17 - 22

Latest athlete count is approximately 120. Iím leaving on March 13th and will be there to assist along with Phil Greenwald and Mary Rosado. The relay team selection process we drafted in Hawaii will be used for team selection.

USA Indoor March 28 Ė 30

As you know Iím on the LOC and weíve been having meeting regularly with excellent progress. One issue to be aware of is if youíre coming to Boston the meet hotel, DoubleTree Guest Suites - Boston, 400 Soldiers Field Rd, is in a different area than past years due to a major convention in town that reserved 20k plus hotel rooms years ago. The hotel is only a mile or so further from the track but not in downtown Boston as in previous years. Probably best to Goggle it if you plan to move about. Harvard Square in Cambridge is nearby and might be an interesting option for example.


Check it out! Itís up and running for all to see. Congratulations to Jeff Davidson and his cohorts. OUR Masters History site was approved at the annual meeting and is funded by masters.


From Jeff,


At this point we are requesting past Masters T&F
newsletters, BIOS of Hall of Famers, and
Region Meet Results. And potentially links on association websites.
